C. As J.D. Salinger, Thomas Pynchon has chosen
D. As had J.D. Salinger, Thomas Pynchon's choice has been
E. J.D. Salinger's choice, as Thomas Pynchon's, has been

Answer choice B is incorrect because it compares a person with a choice

Answer choice C is incorrect for using As salinger implying that salinger is the same person as thomas.

Answer choice E, wrong comparison and the actual sentence talks about Thomas.
